Candy Critic - Lite (and Late)

Already Halloween and I can see trick or treaters outside the window, but I'll be damned it I don't do my yearly (as of last year) review of the newest candy.

Unfortunately, I'm a little short on time, but since TCM is keeping on the skinny side anyway a short review is okay.

I only found one new concoction, and maybe it wasn't new, but I only saw it this year and that is Candy Corn Kisses. It looks nice as you can see from the picture below, but taste...yuck! It's as if Hershey's idea was to add sugar to vomit and make it look like a cute little Kiss. Okay, I am exaggerating a little about the taste, but it did not, in any way, taste like candy corn or a standard Kiss. Don't be fooled by the pretty packaging and chemicals they added to make the "stuff" look like candy corn, 'cuz candy corn it ain't.

Now to balance out the negative review, if you like candy corn it's good mixed with peanuts.

Starting to Feel Better

Since I don't communicate with anyone via the blog, email, social networking sites, the telephone, or text messages you probably didn't know I was sick at all. Well...I was and kind of still am. In keeping with my minimalist approach to blogging, here you go...

Yet another team I play for:

My promise of more posts didn't quite pan out well, did it? This is attemt 37 for consistent posting: shorter posts. Less talk, more shock...oops...wrong audience. TCM: We get to the point.

Here is my post:


1. If you use instant messaging you need to use Windows Live Messenger? Yahoo Shmahoo, Skype is Tripe, and AIM is archiving your messages for later exposure. Done.

2. Now that you have all your contacts on Messenger, message away! But, wait, what about your friend in Mexico whose English is horrible (assuming your Spanish is just as bad). You'd love to message them, but oh what a headache that would be.

What's that T-Bot, you say you can help?

(My head head peeking in above)

Yes, that is right, T-bot will translate for you, no need to speak the same language! In the above example, I'm only conversing with T-bot ('cuz' no one else is up at this hour), but he can be added to any instant messaging conversation and will act as a translator. For a much better decscription of T-bot's utility check out this page MSR Team Blog, but before you do that T-bot has a message for you:
